As a content marketer, I write a lot. Emails, social media posts, brochures, and video scripts all make an appearance on my weekly to-do list. The truth is, when writing is almost your entire job, it’s not always fun. It can quickly become repetitive, error-prone, and time-consuming.
You may have similar feelings when it comes to time-off tracking, onboarding compliance, and document storage. The good news is that there are plenty of software solutions, services, and strategies that can help you efficiently complete necessary tasks, leaving you more time to focus on your employees’ happiness and well-being.
Not too long ago, I worked in Washington, D.C. While exciting, it was an extremely paper dominant environment with no mention of benefits or HR software. I grew accustomed to keeping stacks of benefit plan brochures at my desk and tracked my own time-off in an excel spreadsheet. Then I moved my career to Silicon Valley.
All of a sudden I started to use HR and benefits software and took a job with Ease, a leader in the field. I quickly understood how much HR and benefits technology could positively impact businesses and their employees. Part of it came from the fact that I was able to enroll in benefits online as an employee, submit a PTO request with a mobile app, and talk to a doctor via video chat. The rest came from insights I gathered at Ease from brokers, business owners, and HR experts.
HR Radar is for you.
As a benefits & HR software company, Ease has an extensive bank of knowledge and data on how strong HR and benefits strategies can improve the well-being of a business. Just a few months ago, I asked myself, why aren’t we sharing this information? This thought soon turned into a conversation, and that conversation turned into this blog.
I want to let you know that the HR Radar blog is for you. You can expect a few new posts each month, written with the intent of helping you leverage technology to simplify HR, increase employee engagement, and gain visibility. You will come away from each post with the knowledge you need to improve your HR strategies and processes.
We’ll cover some of the basics like compliance and the benefits of staying connected with your broker. We will also work together to understand trending topics in HR technology like performance management, employee engagement surveys, company culture and best practices for hiring. You won’t have to solely rely on our word either. We’ll profile businesses that have seen success implementing technology and innovative strategies in HR.
Each post will follow the following framework:
- A mini-lesson about a topic in HR, such as the history behind PTO policies in the United States and how these policies impact employee happiness and productivity.
- Data and analysis to support the mini-lesson, drawing from real-life models.
- How you can take the mini-lesson, data, and analysis, to make a positive impact on your company.
If you have any suggestions on what topics we should cover in the HR Radar blog, email them over to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you.
